Unfortunately, this is neither the 4-speed model nor the supercharged R2 edition. Atoning for these shortcomings is a car in seemingly fabulous condition and amazing 48,000 miles on the odometer. What really sets this car apart is its aesthetics and they are well preserved here.
Studebaker is a niche marque that did not garner the same kind of collector following as the big three car manufacturers. This is probably why you can still find Avantis around at a decent price now and then. My advice is to use this advantage and enjoy a real rare classic for a little money.
